The Pro Guiding Service/OR relationship started when OR’s owner, Dan Nordstrom, signed up for a ski mountaineering trip in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland. This was over seven years ago, and we have been excited to be a part of the OR family ever since. Even though we live in a virtual world, it’s more clear than ever that the geographical proximity of OR’s headquarters with Pro Guiding Service’s has helped foster a relationship that has lasted this long. We get to ski tour, climb and mountain bike together, develop and test gear together—that’s the way it’s supposed to work.

Fun Fact: Pro Guiding Service essentially pioneered commercial ski touring and ski mountaineering in Washington State and is about to release its latest book, Backcountry Ski and Snowboard Routes in Washington.
